Details This poster presentations illustrates the main active learning components of an environmental issues content-based class run at the presenter’s university in Japan.
The course is an elective course aimed at students with a good command of English that will allow them to manage the authentic and challenging native level texts and audio-visual materials which make up the bulk of the course’s content.
The presentation details an active learning assignment, which requires students to collaborate with their group in order to complete the project successfully. The focus on active learning is through a project that requires the students to present a detailed account of a community-based activity that they have planned, developed, and if possible, enacted during the 14-week course.
Examples of the guide materials, students' work, and some recent quantitative research will all be included as part of the presentation.
